This profile would be characterized by processing modes of Upper Left A-the analytical, logical, and rational processing; and the interpersonal, emotional, and intuitive thinking modes of the Lower Right C. I have come to testt that my brain processes information a little different to the norm.

Chemistry, engineering, legal occupations would tfst those of great interest. The degree to which anyone of the three primaries, A, B or D, became the lead quadrant would depend on the relative preference for that quadrant. I tets take that as an insult as it is fairly accurate. This is a double dominant profile on the diagonal axis between the Upper Left A quadrant and the Lower Right C quadrant. Can’t change a rubric once you’ve started using it.

In other words, no evidence of validity [of hemisphere dominance] is presented. It is always interesting doing these types of tests as it can give you some insight into the type of person you are, in this case, from a perspective of your thinking style. The secondaries are represented by the Upper Left A quadrant, logical, analytical, and rational modes and the Lower Left B quadrant, organized, administrative and controlled modes. Perceptions and decision making tend to be predictable, coherent and comfortable.


On one occasion, they may be quite controlled and structured: This person would thus be quite visibly ‘feeling’ and people oriented, but still well balanced in the logical, analytical, factual thinking styles of cerebral left A, the organized, administrative and controlled qualities of lower left B and, finally, the creative, synthesizing, holistic modes of processing in cerebral right D. In particular, preferences for logical, analytical, quantitative modes of thinking in the Upper Left A quadrants, along with integrative, synthesizing, imaginative and holistic aspects of the Upper Right D quadrant are exhibited.

This tertiary preference in the C quadrant would be demonstrated by a lack of preference for interpersonal, intuitive, and emotional modes of thinking. Those with this profile often have occupations such as teaching or facilitating. This person’s most visible preferences would be logical, analytic, rational, quantitative and technical processing with some secondary tendencies towards organizing and synthesizing.

Measurements that require people to state preferences between terms have received criticism. Where DISC Personality Tests are focused on How We BehaveHBDI Tests indicate the way we Think as by understanding how you and your team members think means you can make decisions, solve problems, communicate work with and manage others far more effectively Case Study The flexibility and insight of the HBDI Tests has helped organisations in all industries and a real life case study is Bendigo Bank Like Manufacturing, Finance as an industry is predominantly left-brained, and rightly so — money and process; getting the right numbers in the right places.

The secondary trst the Lower Left quadrant B and the Upper Right quadrant D are functional in terms of controlled, conservative and organizing modes of processing in the Lower Left Band holistic, creative, and synthesizing modes in the Upper Right D. The characteristics of this profile would be logical, analytical and rational in Upper Left A; controlled, conservative and organized in Lower Left B.

The person with this profile would feel this distinct difference in their approach to work,communications, decision making and life experiences.

This profile occurs frequently in the population at large, with only a relatively slight difference in the male and female population. Such occupations would include technical positions such as design engineers, researchers and those making both conceptual and quantitative decisions.


Occupations typical of this profile would include human resource professionals and those in counseling and helping positions particularly when there is a heavy administrative load. The really interesting part is how I fit in with my peers. The left mode secondaries with logical, analytical and mathematical thinking styles from Upper Left A and organization, planning and structure from Lower Left B, being functional, yet clearly secondary to the preferred right modes of thinking.

The secondaries represent the Upper Right A quadrant, logical, analytical, and rational modes and the Upper Right D quadrant holistic, creative,and conceptual modes of processing. The image below is a plot of where we all sit. This profile is a singlular dominant profile, the most preferred quadrant being the Upper Left A.

Individuals with hbi profile would exhibit strong preferences for logical, analytical and quantitative modes of thinking in the Upper Left A quadrant; in contrast they would also have a preference for the integrative, synthesizing, creative and holistic aspects of Upper Right D.
